  • Carbon trust halves data centre emissions, by design

    The rise in carbon emissions threatened by the projected exponential growth of data centres could be halved in the UK, thanks to a new design service launched by the Carbon Trust today. The new service has already been piloted in the design of multi-billion pound data storage and processing facility, The Lockerbie Data Centre, Scotland, where it is expected to help reduce operating costs by ...

  • Data Centre CCP Reducing Cost & Carbon Emissions

    Data centres are high energy users, consuming significant amounts of electricity for their operations and in parallel require cooling for optimal performance. The high energy usage also means they potentially have high carbon emissions. These factors make data centres an interesting new frontier for combined heat and power technology. Or as there is a primary requirement for cooling rather than ...

  • Putting a price on carbon emissions

    A new analysis by Carnegie Mellon University researchers provides the clearest picture yet of the possible short-term effects of placing a price for carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The research suggests that even a modest price would almost immediately result in up to 10 percent reductions in emission levels by prompting changes in both power company investments and consumer behavior. ...

  • Helping Industry Reduce Carbon Emissions.

    Climate change and the need to decrease greenhouse gases has become an important global, political and social issue. Many governments are developing new legislation regarding carbon trading and carbon permits. Regulation alone will not solve the issue of greenhouse gas emissions. An effective response to the climate change challenge requires action by everyone - governments, businesses and the ...

  • Wildfires Spew Carbon Emissions Into the Atmosphere

    BOULDER, Colorado, November 1, 2007 (ENS) - Severe wildfires can contribute as much as vehicles to carbon emissions in some U.S. states, although the amount is highly variable, according to a study based on satellite data. New research published in the journal 'Carbon Balance and Management' quantifies these emissions and suggests fires will complicate emissions monitoring and modelling efforts. ...

  • Office-related carbon emissions surge

    The office is becoming a major driver of climate change. Despite ongoing efforts to improve energy efficiency in the workplace, the world's growing reliance on the Internet is leading to a rapid increase in greenhouse gas emissions. The energy required to power all the world's computers, data storage, and communications networks is expected to double by 2020, according to a new McKinsey & Company ...

  • Emissions Trading: 2014 Data Shows Emissions Reduction

    Emissions of greenhouse gases from installations participating in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) are estimated to have decreased by about 4.5% last year, according to the information recorded in the Union Registry. European Commissioner responsible for Climate Action and Energy, Miguel Arias Cañete ...

  • Committed carbon emissions are rising fast

    Challenging news for those climate campaigners who believe that renewable sources of energy are on the increase: they may be, but so are carbon dioxide emissions. Steven Davis of the University of California, Irvine and Robert Socolow of Princeton University in the US report in the journal Environmental Research Letters that existing power plants will emit 300 billion tons of additional carbon ...

  • Carbon emissions set to rise in 2017

    Global carbon emissions look likely to increase this year, putting at risk the hope of meeting the world’s agreement to slow global warming. The world’s carbon emissions are expected to show a lurch upwards this year, by around 2%, after three years of staying virtually level. This is a significant setback to efforts to slow the speed at which the Earth is warming, and ...

  • Carbon emissions ‘outsourced’ to developing countries

    A new study by scientists at the Carnegie Institution for Science finds that over a third of carbon dioxide emissions associated with consumption of goods and services in many developed countries are actually emitted outside their borders. Some countries, such as Switzerland, 'outsource' over half of their carbon dioxide emissions, primarily to developing countries. The study finds that, per ...
